Flutter 1.0.0
Develop iOS and Android apps from one centralised environment

Although we don't profess to be app developers, those app developer's we've spoken to always state it's much harder to create an Android app compared to the dev tools provided for iOS.

Google has attempted to readdress this by creating a cross-platform app development toolkit, Flutter, which has been in beta development for many months and finally sees an official v1.0 launch.

What Flutter attempts to do is bring iOS and Android development into one framework enabling people to create an app without worrying about the UI elements and other OS-specific components required to publish your app. Focus on the functionality and let Flutter worry about how you compile an app for iOS or Android. Of course, you still get access to the native development tools provided by Apple, so you're not going to create an iOS app which will break App Store regulations.

Flutter is already in commercial used, powering Google's Ads app for iOS and Android and Google claims big brands are switching to Flutter to produce their cross-platform apps. You can see a showcase of Flutter-created apps here.

Whilst developing your app in Flutter, you can quickly preview the resulting app in a phone preview window, using both AndroidView and UIKitView to render an app preview.

Google is hoping to take Flutter to another level, enabling you to create Windows and Mac desktop apps from within the same development toolkit.

Verdict:

An interesting all-in-one development studio which will enable you to create an iOS, Android and soon Windows and Mac desktop app all from the single toolkit.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
